Stayed at Kinlay house with a group of 6 friends for a 3 day sightseeing/drinking trip, after looking through lots of various hotels and hostels for the best deal with the best location we werent disappointed after choosing Kinlay.
We got a really good deal, and when we arrived our room got upgraded so that we had our own bathroom, which was handy although with 6 of us we still ended up using the shared bathrooms which were clean and of a good but basic condition. The rooms were basic but we only needed somewhere to sleep which was fine. The hostel staff were very helpful with directions/suggestions for places to go and the hostel is literally in the heart of where you need to be, the tourist hotspots are all in a walkable distance as are all the shops.
We brought the dublin pass before we arrived which was very useful as we visited tons of tourist attractions and really got the use out of it, but if you are only planning on visiting the guiness storehouse for example its probably not worth it.
The restaurants and bars were pretty expensive but we were prepared for this, there were lots of early bird deals in the restaurants which we took advantage of and if all else fails theres always places like pizza hut to go where you know what price to expect.
The nightlife was lively and fun especially as we visited during the week so were not quite sure to expect.
Overall a brilliant stay and would definatley reccomend to others as a base for the city.
